Should you wrap a sprained ankle overnight?

The ankle is a joint which connects the leg to the foot and provides you with a range of motion in the area. Ankle sprains are an injury where you roll or twist your ankle in an abnormal way so that the ligaments in the ankle stretch or tear, followed by discomfort and pain. If you or a loved one has fractured a bone from an accident, contact Agruss Law Firm, LLC for a free consultation so we can help you recover from this experience and get fairly compensated.

A sprained ankle can be frustrating to deal with, and you may be seeking the quickest way to ensure a quick recovery. By following your doctor’s treatment instructions, you will have the best outcome from treatment. An ankle sprain should be treated with the RICE standard, standing for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. These should minimize the pain and symptoms of the sprain.

Compression, specifically, refers to efforts to stabilize and protect the area as well as contain its swelling. Many people use a brace to support the ankle during the day, but some may feel pain to the point where they would like a nighttime remedy in the form of compression also. You can wrap a sprained ankle with a compression bandage overnight. You should keep in mind that you should not make it too tight and also be sure to wrap it in its natural position so that you do not throw off the configuration in which it is healing. If you notice that it does help you with the swelling and pain in the healing process, continue to do so and consult your doctor with any concerns or questions.
